Debian DLA-1332-1 : libvncserver security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 108766
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
Descriptionlibvncserver version through 0.9.11. does not sanitize msg.cct.length which may result in access to uninitialized and potentially sensitive data or possibly unspecified other impact (e.g., an integer overflow) via specially crafted VNC packets.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.9.9+dfsg-1+deb7u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your libvncserver packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
